Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings

Intent of the Intervention

Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings (EWPHCCS) is a multi-component intervention that focuses on improving the nutrition and physical activity behaviors of pre-school age children and their parents/caregivers by using educational strategies and skill building activities to promote healthy behavior change. The intervention also builds social support within the child care environment by including teachers and care providers in lessons and encouraging positive role-modeling and classroom reinforcement of nutrition and physical activity messages.

EWPHCCS is a practice-tested intervention.
